Field trials in Dörentrup
To demonstrate the effectiveness and flexibility of the prototypes in a real-world environment, a field trial in the “Smart Energy Village” in the Lippe district, in Germany, was conducted by Kreis Lippe. Buildings with different characteristics were selected to ensure a comprehensive assessment of the AnyPLACE solution performance. The capability of the AnyPLACE solution to enable load management and renewable based micro-generation management was analysed.
Workshops and Laboratory Open Days
During the project various Industry events were held, aimed at DSOs, retailers, ICT providers and smart meter manufacturers. These represented an opportunity to share the results achieved within the AnyPLACE project and plan joint initiatives beyond the end of the project.
A final project event in the demonstration site presented and discussed the results with all smart grid stakeholders as well as the interested public. The final event was hosted in the “Smart Energy Village” in the Lippe district of Germany.
